Windows copy multiple files as per list

  DaveCatt 19:54 21 Nov 2017

Hi, I need some help with copying multiple image files from one folder to another, the original (source folder) has over 4000 image files and I only want to copy selected files from a list of file names that I have produced in CSV file.

Is there away in windows explorer or third party software that I can batch copy and move the files listed in CSV?. Any help would be appreciated as this is a mammoth task if I cannot batch copy these image files.
